Want to travel Shikoku? The Shikoku Transport and Tourism Bureau is sponsoring up to 20 foreign nationals who currently reside in Japan to design a tour of their choice, and use social media and online outlets to promote themselves and Shikoku; those that reach the widest audience could receive a cash prize! This is an excellent chance for budding travel-bloggers get funding and explore Shikoku while honing their writing skills.
The deadline is May 18 to apply; there will be a mandatory meeting on Saturday, May 24, in Takamatsu to kick things off. Any foreign national living throughout Japan is welcome to apply; limited Japanese ability is not a problem.
If you have any questions before applying, feel free to contact Tori Koyama (Tokushima 2011-13) at ">.
The application can be found here. Good luck!
